San Leandro 2050 began their first in-person community events in April! After holding our listening sessions with neighbors and residents exclusively online during 2020 and 2021, it was a big relief to get outside and enjoy face to face discussions. We were so excited to be able to interact directly with residents and hear San Leandro’s emissions related issues, their possible solutions and the benefits to climate related problems. People are excited to be out and about, and able to participate in these events. If you were among those we had the pleasure to meet and speak with, thank you so much for joining! great to hear about our neighbors 'concerns and dreams for San Leandro.
We were lucky to be invited to several really great events. We presented at Earth Day at Casa Peralta, Eco Day at the Boys & Girls Club, and the Gathering downtown–all huge successes! These get-togethers highlight that people are missing the opportunity to gather together in person with neighbors and friends to celebrate, enjoy the outdoors and talk about our community and their hopes for San Leandro’s future. Below we share the top questions we ask for opinions on- we’d love to hear from you too!
